coming up in 30 minutes for now. thanks for starting your morning with us. i'll see you at the top of the hour. "your bottom line" starts right now. >>> thanks. see you at the top of the hour. we're not in a recession. for many of you, it sure might feel like one. good morning, everyone. i'm christine romans. for a moment there it felt like things were turning around, stock market near all-time highs, housing market recovering and the economy adding jobs every month. now relief may have given way to a little bit of worry. here's why. it's starting to feel like a recession again, especially if you're living paycheck to paycheck, gas prices up nearly 50 cents in the past month. the fastest run-up, you're bringing homeless money, thanks to the expiration of the tax cut. you're getting about 60 bucks less every month. rents are rising, up 12 quarters in a row now. unemployment is still too high. if you were counting on an early tax refupd you have had to wait. because of the fiscal cliff fiasco, the irs did not start issuing refund checks until january 30th. a stretched consumer, a con
. our chief international correspondent christiane amanpour joins us from rome. this report was in "the observer," the newspaper, saying one man was a 20-year-old seminarien, cardinal was a spiritual director and inappropriate approaches were made after night prayers. what do you know about the case and what cardinal o'brien is saying? >> reporter: well, look, we know according to published reports there's this case and three other cases. a total of four cases now coming out and accusing cardinal o'brien of inappropriate sexual misconduct. he himself is said to have taken up, obviously, legal counsel. he has, as we've said, resigned but he was resigning months ago. it's just that today pope benedict accepted that resignation. he didn't have to accept it today. it could have been further delayed but he did accept the resignation. and now we've also know, because of statements cardinal o'brien has posted, he will not come here to rome and take part in the election of the next pope in the conclave. he said that he would want the spotlight not to be on him but on the pope. but what is clear
challenged. a new brown by pat brown called "the murder of cleopatra" uses criminal profiling and crime reconstruction to determine if her death was a murder, not a suicide. an interesting theory and reminds us that legends are just about instinct. in a world of camera phones, youtube, tmz, twitter, all of us are under intense scrutiny and we really do overshare. and yes, might seem strange for a journalist to be complaining about the loss of mystery, but while knowing the truth is important, to me it's legend that makes life so exciting. what will the future think of our era? they'll have no one to hold up as a legend. they'll see all the warts and nastiness and infighting and, ah, that's sad. anderson cooper 360 starts right now. >>> erin, thanks. i'm wolf blitzer filling in for anderson cooper. tonight, a diamond heist straight out of an action movie script. thieves in belgium make off with $50 million in diamonds in just minutes. a highly choreographed heist now the question who done it? also a follow-up on a 360 investigation involving a veterans hospital, contaminated water and mu

. that is all for us tonight. now, "ac 360" with wolf blitzer in for anderson cooper. >> thanks, piers. good evening, everyone. it is 10:00 p.m. here on the east coast. i'm wolf blitzer in for anderson cooper. tonight, a diamond heist straight out of an action movie script, thiefs in belgium make off with $50 million in diamonds in just minutes. a highly choreographied heist. now the question, who done it? >>> also ahead, a follow-up on a "360" investigation involving a veterans hospital contaminated water and multiple cases of legionnaires' disease. tonight, just how widespread the outbreak was and why there are now accusations of a cover-up. we're keeping them honest. >>> we begin with the murder charge that captivated and horrified millions of people around the globe. today, the suspect, the olympian runner oscar pistorius gave his side of the story. in his own words, reads by i had lawyer at the bail hearing, he described in dramatic detail what led him to shoot and kill his girlfriend in the middle of the night. you're going to hear his words in a moment. while his statement was being r
and work with us. we care about what happens to this economy and the people who sent us here. we have proffered alternatives and solutions. we don't adhere or agree with this false choice the president's putting forward. and as cathy said, president's off campaigning in my state in newport news, virginia. yes, we're very, very concerned about the impact on the commonwealth as we are on all states. there's a way to effect the right changes and reforms so we can avoid that. and we must set aside the false choice the president is proffering. >> as the other leaders have said, the president's only -- >> all right, so that's kevin mccarthy right now. that was eric cantor before that, the speaker. doesn't look like they're putting forward a new initiative to try to break the stalemate. he's referring to legislation that members of the house, the majority, passed last -- in the last session of congress. but that legislation is not -- does not spill over into this new session of congress, if congress is going to want to take up new legislation to avert this forced spending. they have to pass
those spending cuts from going into effect because gdp wouldn't take a hit. that means growth in the u.s. couldn't take a hit. as far as what else is propelling stocks higher, mergers and acquisitions going on, media, even in the office services area, office depot, office max, possibly talking about a tie-up themselves. that is certainly giving some momentum to stocks and giving investors a little bit of oo mph to buy into the stock. who knows if it will stick. >> alison, thank you. >> sure. >>> thank you for keeping me company here at cnn as i was in for brooke baldwin. i want to take you to "the situation room" with wolf blitzer because he starts right now. and let's take a look at the "closing bell." you heard alison kosik say we're not going to hit the 14,164 today but we there is a lot going on in washington with the sequester and we have to hope that we are going to be seeing these kinds of numbers, wolf. we certainly hope it for a long time. but depending on what -- depending on what washington does, we'll have to see if it sticks. wolf blitzer? >>> thanks very much. happening now
of events, and why oscar pistorius should be kept in jail until a trial. >> robyn curnow is joining us now. an affidavit from reeva's best friend was also ad in court. and i'm quoting, she said she could see a future with him. she said if oscar asked her to marry him, she'd probably say yes. so what was the reaction by pistorius and the rest of the courtroom, for that matter, when hearing that? >> you know, i wish we'd had video of it to show you. i mean, it was heartwrenching in many ways. oscar pistorius absolutely broke down in tears every time reeva's name was mentioned. and at that particular moment, he just sobbed and sobbed uncontrollably. at one point in the proceedings, i thought he was going to hyperventilate, that they'd need to get a medic in to try to assist him. he really was quite broken, quite traumatized, but the descriptions of how they were happy together, that, you know, perhaps she had thoughts of marrying him really, really touched him. and i think there was also that reminder that we still don't know whether he's innocent or guilty. you know, there's a lot of specula

useful." still, the penny remains in play. for starters, there is the arguable contention that everything will cost more because stores will round up their prices. then there are the pro-penny forces, including a penny preservation lobbying group started by a big zinc company. did we mention that pennies are more than 97% zinc? and there's no political push against the penny. a poll last year funded by the zinc industry showed that even though many americans give away, lose, otherwise ignore penny, 67% want to keep them away. a professor testified in 1990 for the pro-penny lobby. he actually thinks the economic case for getting rid of pennies is stronger now, but he doesn't see it happening under this particular president. >> i can't imagine a former member of congress from illinois is going to lead the way to get rid of the lincoln penny. >> sentimentality aside, abe and his monument are also on the $5 bill, the economic case for a penniless u.s. grows more compelling, giving ex-congressman kolbe hope. >> the polling is very clear that when people find out about the savin

pages, this reveals when the united states can use lethal force against an american linked to al qaeda. talked to critics, they say the scariest aspect of the 16-page memo is its lack of detail. for some time, a number of lawmakers have been calling for the release of material detailing what guidance the president uses to call for a drone strike. the most high profile incident is the death of anwar al awlaki and al qaeda leader and american killed in a drone strike in yemen, in 2010. his father is suing multiple u.s. officials for the death of his son, and his grandson, abdul rahman, killed in a separate drone attack. >> i don't necessarily agree with what some of the things he said. but does that men they should kill him outside the law. >> as painful as it was to see your son killed, did you in the back of your mind expect that to happen? >> in anwar it was expected because he was under target killing. but how they go and kill abdul rahman, small boy, u.s. citizen from denver, colorado. >> no doubt, this leaked paper from the department of justice will come into play during the thurs
